Fresh pineapple chunks, a sweet and refreshing marinade, and juicy, tender meat make up the ideal grilling recipe for Barbecue chicken kabobs. This dish is hearty and light, making it ideal for camping trips, summer barbecues, or potluck gatherings.

We always seem to be searching for new recipes to try when grilling season begins. You can always find something new to attempt, whether it’s a novel method to prepare barbecue chicken or a brand-new homemade barbecue sauce.

You’ll get both with our BBQ chicken kebabs. A tasty new barbecue sauce and a novel method for cooking chicken. This recipe for BBQ Chicken Pineapple Kabobs is ideal for using your outdoor grill.

To give the chicken breasts a rich flavor that penetrates every piece of meat, the chicken is chopped and marinated in a delicious sauce. Then, for a little while, they are grilled along with fresh vegetables (long enough to make your mouth water).

Recipe variations:

  • Bacon: Add raw bacon to the skewers for crispy bacon chicken kabobs.
  • Other meat: You could also use pork, turkey, or beef chunks instead of chicken breasts.
  • Soy sauce: In this recipe, adding some soy sauce to the final coating would be delicious. 
  • Add veggies: Feel free to add other veggies to your BBQ chicken skewers. Mushrooms, zucchini, and tomatoes are some good choices.
  • Make barbecue sauce sweeter: Add some brown sugar to your BBQ sauce for a sweeter flavor.
  • Spice it up: Try your own flavor combination of spices like thyme, paprika, garlic powder, or onion powder.
  • Heat it up: For spicy chicken kabobs, add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to the marinade. 
  • Grill pan: If the weather is not cooperating, just use a grill pan in your oven instead.
